She was a surrogate mother to Valinda and Sharon following the deaths of their parents, and a grandmother to their children, Kathleen McCullough, Amber Jackson, Brittany Jackson, and Thomas Yeates. Mary Ann is survived by her husband, Fred Fewin; his daughters, Lisa Verkamp and Teresa McCabe; five nieces; and numerous grandnieces and grandnephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers; and grandniece, Tisha Stewart.
